HIPAA Privacy Policy

At AVYIA, we prioritize the privacy and security of our users’ personal information, especially when it concerns health-related information. This Privacy Disclaimer outlines our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal and health information when you use our medical website, in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). By accessing and using our website, you agree to the terms outlined in this Privacy Disclaimer.

HIPAA Compliance:

As a provider involved in the transmission and maintenance of Protected Health Information (PHI), we adhere strictly to the privacy and security rules set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Our practices are designed to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI that we collect, use, or disclose.

Information Collection and Use:

Personal Information: In addition to collecting personal information such as your name, email address, and contact information, we may also collect health-related information as part of our services. This may include medical history, treatment plans, and other health-related information. All such information is considered Protected Health Information (PHI) under HIPAA and is subject to stringent confidentiality and security measures.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:

Third-Party Service Providers: In cases where we engage third-party service providers to assist in the operation of our website and services, any access to PHI by these providers will be governed by a Business Associate Agreement (BAA), as required by HIPAA. This ensures that they will also comply with the necessary privacy and security measures to protect your information.

Legal Compliance and Health Oversight: We may disclose PHI when required by law, including for public health activities, reporting of abuse or neglect, health oversight audits or inspections, and judicial or administrative proceedings. Any disclosure will be minimal, limited to the necessary information, and in compliance with HIPAA regulations.

Data Security:

In line with HIPAA’s security rule, we implement strict security measures, including physical, administrative, and technical safeguards, to protect PHI from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we also comply with HIPAA’s requirements to ensure your data safety.

Patients' Rights under HIPAA:

As a patient, HIPAA grants you several rights regarding your health information, including the right to access your PHI, request amendments to your health records, receive an accounting of disclosures, and request restrictions on certain uses and disclosures of your PHI. You also have the right to receive confidential communications in a manner that is convenient for you.

Children's Privacy:

AVYIA aims to comply with Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) specifically aims to protect the privacy of children under the age of 13 by requesting parental consent for the collection or use of any personal information of the users. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13.
